On July 12, 2018, MarketWatch reported Danske’s head of compliance resigned and the Company reportedly admitted its anti- money-laundering internal controls were insufficient.
On July 18, 2018, Danske stated it will forgo profits made from suspicious transactions in Estonia, driving the price of Danske ADRs down $1.43, or over 9%, to close at $13.81 that day.
Reuters reported on September 4, 2018 that the Company handled up to $30 billion of Russian and ex-Soviet money via its Estonian branch in 2013 alone, driving the price of Danske ADRs down almost 6.5% to close at $13.73 that day.
Today, the Wall Street Journal reported $150 billion that flowed through its Estonian outpost are being studied, driving the price of Danske ADRs down as much as 5.8% during intraday trading.
“We’re focused on investors’ losses, Danske’s admitted insufficient controls, the compliance officer’s resignation, and the extent to which the Company may have reported illegally earned profits in several years’ of financial reports,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
